I sort of got a little tired of the blog scene, and not thinking too much about my measly little blog I decided to just let it die out.
Im not sure what im trying to say... if I will continue to blog or not im just not sure...but I suppose for now I'll give an update on my summer during July.
Ever since my large vintage haul I've been scouring my lands for hidden vintage treasures...at antique stores in forgotten towns, and mostly at auctions full of people who only want to collect decorative glass.
I don't have any personal photos as of right now but I can show you some of the ebay finds I've been snatching up.
Understand I actually have no plans on getting married anytime soon. I am not one of those pycho marriage girls who dreams of their wedding day her whole life. Sometimes when I am looking at vintage clothes on eBay I look in the Edwardian section for the most perfect lacy wedding gown....and when I happened upon this one I knew I must buy it and save it for that blessed day when I unite with my one true love..blah. Anyway, It hasn't arrived yet, but oh man...I can't wait...and wait and wait....
Tomarrow I have another auction to attend and I have to finish mending the most beautiful 20's Pouff sleeved, circus inspired crepe dress. I'll have to photograph it to show everyone. I won it at my last auction for $5. I spent all this evening in surgery, replacing the color blockes of fabric on the sleeves...they were in bad shape.
I have still been selling on ebay, and have quite the perfect lot of 40's and 50's teen dresses.
Let me know if theres anyone out there reading this mess.

It's really special being able to own and wear something that once belonged to someone in your family. After my grandma passed away in February little vintage treasures have been trickling down to me. Yesterday my mom and I were going through her broaches and I found this cute rose one. I love everything about it, mostly that at one time I know my Grandma loved it too. It's a little bizarre how glamorous my grandmother was. Soon I'll do a post about the other things she left my mother and I.
Here are some photos I took of my mother and Grandmother for my Photography class. I was documenting our lives and my Grandmothers life after her stroke.
I hope in the future to show more of my art and talk about things that are more important to me than clothing...take care everyone.

It's simple and elegent, the lace detailing around the sleeves really gets me.
This dress is a little harder to appreciate from these photographs. I'd say it's about 100 years old. There is hardly anything wrong with it besides a few missing hooks. I purchased it at a second hand shop I actually use to work at. The owner is a bit crazy but upstairs is entirely filled with wonderful real vintage from 20's flapper, art deco, 40's and victorian. Some pieces are truly breath taking...and so are their price tags. Im not sure why but this piece was only $18 so I snatched It up right away. The owner randomly prices things so sometimes you can get a good deal. Im going to wear this to a wedding im photographing this weekend. Hopefully I'll get some pictures with me wearing it and the dress will come to life!
I think im going to hold on to this one for now. See how it acts in water.
EDIT: I just listed two pairs of sunglasses, 1 purse and two dresses
I decided to list the bargans first, these things are on sale.
You can catch a sneak peak at what will be up on my flickr for Sunday.
Sit tight till then, I'll be posting more WR this week than last!
